    If it's just one contact why don't you just put it back in?

    Hi guys, I am also a new Android user (previous phones were iPhone) and new to commenting/searching/EVERYTHING online forums for answers, so bear with me.

    I may be CRAZY, but I seem to recall that my Note 5 (the first few months I had it) would show the content of a notification in the status bar in addition to the icon up top. For example, when I receive a text message, the little envelope would show up in the status bar as well as the content of the text message itself would display briefly up top.
    Or if I installed a new app, the status bar would briefly display "_________ Successfully installed".

    But ever since I updated to 6.0.1, that feature has gone away. Now it's just the icons in my status bar.

    Two questions:
    1. Am I crazy, or does anyone else remember this feature?
    2. If it was there, where did it go? How can I get it back?

    I love the ability to see my notification content displayed "ticker style" as I would be using another app, etc. Please help!

    Does it go app by app settings or is it a general setting? Because I am positive I have it enabled on messaging apps. It pops up the message over my content which I actually don't like. Before my previews were relegated to the actual status bar rather than over the app I was working on.

    Ah, I see. You mean a ticker style feature. I guess, it's not implemented anymore. Maybe there's an app around including this feature.

    Yeah it seems not. Because all of my notifications show content on lock screen or swipe down. That wasn't really the issue. But I guess that's a bit of Lollipop that is gone forever! Bummer. I guess I'm in the minority of users that liked it.

    Nah, I love the size, personally. Got used to it the first day, and now I can't imagine using a smaller phone again. Everything is better, from having a larger screen for video, higher resolution for general browsing, and more space between keys on the keyboard making general typing better. It's wonderful.

    The only thing that's sort of "too big" about it is that I tend to use my phone with my left hand, its back button is too far to reach one-handed, but that'd be resolved if Samsung just flipped the menu and back buttons to match every other Android phone.

    I moved from the iPhone 4S which makes the Note 5 positively gargantuan but it was perfect for me. I was so tired of having a small phone in big hands.

    Re: CONTACTS

    On the PHONE icon, selecting "contacts" brings up all my contacts. On the other hand, when I go through the icon, CONTACTS, some are missing. Basically all my contacts are through GMAIL.

    How can get all my contacts to open on CONTACTS? On SETTINGS I have "all contacts" checked. It doesn't matter, they still only show up by going to PHONE>CONTACTS. I've tried to add my missing contacts under DEVICE also, but it won't let me as it always defaults back to GMAIL contacts, and doesn't let me duplicate a contact. I prefer having the contacts merged from the two sources, GMAIL and DEVICE.

    I would appreciate any help....thanks in advance.

    Well now, I can see there were no answers. But.....all the contacts just showed up spontaneously. I have no idea why either.

    I have a Galaxy Note 5 but I haven't been capable to use the option print - > save as PDF as I used in other models of telephones.

    Can you please check if you are able to?

    If not, I do guess Samsung has removed such option.

    I installed print plugins for my printer but doesn't give me the option save as pdf only print directly to the printer.

    It was a quite useful option I used to print out the bank bills to keep evidence on payment. I am not sure if that print option if discontinued and now I should use share, I would like to know if there any good software that permit to print as pdf emulating that feature available in all the rest of modern telephone a using Android.

    Looking forward any tip

    Well I have 2 questions about my wife's Note 5

    1) Does it have additional storage for photos? If so where? I can't seem to find the photos when viewing the device in Windows 10.. I've looked in vzpics, pictures, dcim.... yet when I clear data in google photos, after a few mins hundreds show up again
    2) In google drive, I found hundreds of photos in mydrive\photos and more in google photos. again where are they stored on the phone and how can I merge them?

    What we are seeing is, new pics show up in google photos and in the gallery, yet any old photos or or ones that are downloaded from email or text seem to only show up in the gallery

    Can someone explain the difference, where they are stored, how can I merge them and keep them straight?

    What a mess
    Thanks in advance

    OK so tonight I searched the phone again on my computer, can't find any photos, anywhere. There is nothing in Google Photos in her Google Drive. I cleared the data/cache in the app and it says everything is going away, ok cool... I then started Google Photos on her phone and it requested access, granted, then all of her pictures come back.

    Now, I don't think they are full res or local for that matter, in fact I think they are just thumb nails since over 1100 showed up in about 30 seconds and when I select a photo and select Info, it doesn't tell me the file location. If I select the hamburger stack in the upper right corner when viewing a photo, I can select to restore, when I do that I get another picture in Google Photos and this new one gives me a location on the internal storage dcim\restored. Now it has a location on the internal storage that I can see in Windows Explorer.

    So, were are the thumb nails coming from and how do I nix them all since I have a backup of all photos saved on my computer so I can start over with a clean slate

    Thanks in advance

    I'm guessing that it's just the Google apps with access to the phone's built in gallery. I don't use Google photos to back up my photos, but when I open Google photo, it shows my gallery photos and it will ask if I want to "keep backup turned off", or "turn on backup". Just Google being Google.

    Hi I am from Australia and recently Samsung pushed Grace UI OTA. Now have two problems. (1) There is no switch to turn on or off fast charging. (2) My favourites have disappeared in the phone app.

    Anyone have any ideas.

    Settings - advanced features - Palm swipe to take screen shot. Easiest way imho.
